Product in my true gdm-49f freezer is frosting up and there is an ice build up around the inside of the case. what could be the causes of this.


Try defrosting the unit by shutting it down until all ice is gone. If this corrects the problem and the ice returns you may either have a defrosting problem or a low freon charge.

The inside of unit is only reading 20 degrees. Door seal is okay.


Start off by cleaning the condenser coils. If you get up on a step ladder or chair look for the radiator in front of a fan. This radiator gets hot when running. If the air flow is stopped by dust or grease in the coils ther freezer will not work properly. Be sure the fan is running also whenever the compressor is running. The next most common problem is that the inside coils are frozen over. Your unit must defrost 3 or 4 times per day. When the door is opened frost accumulates on the inside coils and will eventually cover the coils with ice if your defrost cycle is not working. If the coil freezes over the temperature will go up, the compressor will continue to run and it the temperature will continue to increase. Check the inside coils for ice. If there is ice, you will have to unplug the unit and let the ice thaw completely before restart. If the unit pulls down to 0 after restart, it was probably frozen over. If that is the case you will need to either increase the number of defrost cycles or verify that the defrost cycle is working. Try this and repost if that does not resolve your problems.

I have a true tuc48-f freezer..Problem: Frost build up to the point that the doors freeze shut and I have to scrape the ice off. Also at time it make a rackety noise like the fan hit solid ice.


It seems you have diagnosed your own problem.
Check the defrost circuit. It appears your defrost cycle is not working.
Also,check the door seals closely.
A loose or broken door seal can contribute to these symptoms as well

Door jam icing up


door has to seal tight. also, there are door frame heaters called, "Anti Sweat Heaters." It is to prevent condensation and ice build up around the doors. Have that checked out.

Defrost the freezer completely. Make sure the doors are sealed completely when shut. After defrosting plug back in and make sure the fan and the self defroster is functioning (your owner's manual should tell you how to reset the defrost timer). the problem may lay within the defrost system, and/or door seals and/or interior circulating fan.

Our 19.6 cf whirlpool "commercial" freezer (sn EV201NXMQ0312 building up ice in the bottom under the slide out basket. It actually builds up enough in a month or so to keep the basket from sliding out....


the ice build up is from a frozen drain line. you will need to remove teh rear cover in the freezer and you will uncover a coil at the bottom center there is a drain hole that allows defrost water to drain out. defrost any ice then flush the line out with warm water. if it doesnt clear right away you may need to use a large syringe or possibly a turkey baster to force warm water into drain.
BTW the door not sealing is not related to this problem. good luck peyton

Defrost hose plugs


Remove the back cover to access the top of that drain line. Take some table salt in a tablespoon and dump in the tube. Will drain so fast you won't believe it. Might have a big build up of ice blocking the top so get your hair dryer and defrost that big build up. Flush with small amount of water and monitor the drain pan located under neath the freezer. hope this was helpfull

Water on bottom of freezer


most commercial freezers have a drain to the back of the compressor area where the condensate goes into a pan and is boiled off into the air by a loop of hot gas tubing in the pan or an electric heater in the pan. when it defrosts the ice on the coil melts and the water flows out . if the tubing gets plugged the water flows out of the pan and down into the bottom of the box where it refreezes on start of the next refrigeration cycle. clean and clear drain with a shop vac or air hose where water can flow out of pan under the evaporator coil when it defrosts. if you have a domestic residential freezer , most of these have no defrost and neeed to be shut down and manually defrosted every few years. if you leave the door ajar or it doesn't seal well ice builds up and can accumulate in the bottom as frost etc. it would be mosyt unusual for a residential box to have a defrost clock, drain and all, but possible and same rules apply. find the drain and clear with shop vac .
